    Yes it is - they cancelled the irrigation schemes, are introducing fart taxes, and are planning on limiting herd numbers.

    Labour campaigned on borrowing more than National, and also campaigned on paying down less debt than National, and campaigned on paying down debt slower than National. Debt to gdp is the correct measure to use (this is what economists use), and by world standards ours is very low. This is due to the Bolger and Clark governments paying down alot of debt that had been racked up by mostly the Muldoon government, and due to strong global economic times in the decade before the global financial crisis, and due to good economic management through the aftermath of the global financial crisis. To put it in perspective our debt to gdp is 22.2%, and peaked at 54.8% in the aftermath of the Muldoon era. Japan is at 253%, USA at 104%, and the UK 85%.

    Norway makes its money from mining and exporting oil. Labour is already shutting that industry down here, so that rules that out. Our income comes mainly from dairy which is already being attacked by Labour and the Greens, so maybe that golden goose will be maimed. The only way Labour knows how to increase income, is by raising taxes and borrowing more than before.

    National campaigned against the regional fuel tax - they even had an advert that attacked Labours myriad of taxes, including the regional fuel tax. National has promised to cancel the regional fuel tax if elected. Heres the old advert from the election campaign;

    National opposed all the regional fuel taxes. They actively campaigned against it.

    There is no doubt there is a huge amount of corruption in the US system. The old boys club doesn't surprise me.

    I've watched the Dr Ford interviews and something doesn't sit right. She comes across very coached and unreliable, and there are many holes in her story. We will never know what actually happened, but it appears at least partially politically motivated. I haven't watched the Kav interviews yet.

    My research on LS swaps has taught me to stick to the bmw rear end - much less painless, and much cheaper.

    Done well to get this far if those are the original guides. Looks like you stepped in just in time.

    They are even more biased than CNN. No wonder you get caught up in conspiracy theories.
